Your Questions Answered
Q. What payment methods do you accept?
A. We accept all major debit and credit cards. You can also checkout using PayPal.
Q. How do I redeem a discount or special offer?
A. To redeem a discount code, select the shopping bag icon, click on ‘View Cart’, enter the code in the ‘Enter a promo code’ field. If you proceed to checkout without entering your code you’ve gone too far and need to go back to your Shopping Cart. You can only use one promotional code per order.
Q. Why isn’t my voucher code working?
A. Double check you haven’t clicked through to the checkout before adding your voucher code, as it can only be entered while you’re in the Shopping Cart. Voucher codes are set to expire after a certain time, so it might be that you’re using an outdated code. Most of our vouchers are for single use and case sensitive. Also, you can’t use more than one on a single order.
Q. Can I add to an existing order?
A. We can't add to orders, but if you email us within 2 hours of your original order, we will help you to put through another one without additional delivery charges if the order is for the same delivery address.
Q. Can I split my order across multiple delivery addresses?
A. Unfortunately, we're not able to split a single order. A quick fix for this is to place separate orders.
Q. Can I cancel or change my order?
A. Unfortunately, once an order has been placed, it cannot be cancelled. If you need to change the contents of your order, you can email us within 2 hours of your original order and we will help you with this. Please note there is an admin fee of £15 for making changes to orders after they have been placed.
Q. What does pre-order mean?
A. If there's something on the website you really love but the stock isn't due for a few more weeks, you can pre-order it before it arrives on our premises. Once you've selected the item, you'll see the expected delivery date displayed along with the message "Order now, available from dd/mm/yyy".
Q. The items I put in my shopping basket recently are sold out – what happened?
A. Please note that adding items to your shopping basket does not reserve them. Products are not allocated to you until you have ordered them.
Q. Has my order been successful?
A. Once your order has gone through, you should receive an email with an order number. If you don't receive an email, just double check that you've spelt your email address correctly. Also, check your Spam/Junk folder and mark emails coming from us (Teddo Play, firstname.lastname@example.org) as not spam. If you've checked and you're still unsure, please email us and we will be happy to assist.
Q. Will I be charged customs and import duties?
A. As we ship from the UK, you wouldn't pay Customs and Import inside the European Union. However, outside the Union, charges may apply when the goods reach their destination. We don't have any control over the amounts charged. Please note that if your order is over a certain weight, we may have to split the delivery into more than one parcel resulting in more than one charge – unfortunately this is beyond our control.
